Secondary to my GPS 'inspired' adventures returning home from the Border Run...I drove across a very nice twisty stretch of US 58, above Stuart, VA.

Sadly, I was stuck behind a 'land-yacht' being driven by a person from Florida...who had no business on this stretch of road. No speeds over 30mph and across the double yellow countless times !!!

Anyway...if you are in that area you might want to give that stretch a try.

There are several very good twisty roads in that area. Try...

VA Highway 8 from Stuart to Floyd

VA Highway 40 from Woolwine to Ferrum (this road is right off Highway 8) Many curves and a sign at the start "No Tractor Trailers Allowed"

One of my favorites starts in Fairview, NC, it's very basic with only one turn. US74 towards chimney rock, rt 9 all the way to black mountain. It's a good long really twisty drive. A couple of short straights to wind the car out a little and then back to business. Another good one in WNC is Leicester hwy to hot springs, but I can't even begin to give directions for that..don't know any rd names.

About an hour from Winston or Greensboro, just northwest of Hanging Rock State Park to where Hwy 66 North intersects Hwy 89 going east then turns southeast. Check out the squiggles on 66 south around Hwy 268!

Hope that you don't mind the intrusion from a Florida Cracker but the route that I take coming up to see my Carolina friends & family is Hwy 28 going north from Clemson all the way to the Dragon. It is the perfect road that has plenty of spots for triple digit driving, tight 9K turns, Picturesque Towns (Highlands), farmland scenery and country homes to drool over when you calm down to catch your breath. Just about all new blacktop and the perfect warm up for the Dragon. 2.5 - 3 hours one way, depending on traffic.

Hiway 66 was part of the NC-VA border run last fall, look up a few posts earlier on this thread....

We'll try to organize another run later in the summer or early fall.
